Re: dryer will not start

Could be a defective starter button, door switch, and/or timer.

Dryer working fine. Then go to use it and nothing. does not turn on. No noise. No thrown breaker. a little bit of noise(clicking) from dial (timer) when turned on. On some settings but not all.

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor goingbad...

Just stopped working still has power-inside light comes on and timer makes noise when you turn dial but does not start when you push start button

This sounds like the door switch. But it could also be the non-resettable thermal fuse inside. Open the door, depress the door switch until it clicks, and while holding it in see if the dryer starts.

Here's the problem: There is a dial on the dryer that should allow me to adjust for 'more dry' and 'less dry'. Up until recently, I could set the dial, and end up with clothes that were either 'more dry'...

sounds like you may have a clogged or kinked vent. its generating heat so the dryers good, your not exhausting properly, either clean or replace your venting, look to where it exits hte home sometimes theres ascreen over it cloggged with lint!!!!
